Just enjoyed sausage sandwich, cooked by hubby. Can't make up my mind whether to go out into my garden (midges biting) or go to NGS Stone and Roses garden near Chorley.

I talk to anything, whether it be dead or alive! With only a 3 year old for company, sometimes it's a must!

I don't know about Sally the psychic Geoff. I'll have to look her up!

Pam, that would be great. I always associated overwintering with greenhouses (my newbie status showing through), which I don't have. Here, it's either in the ground outside, in a container outside, or in a pot inside, but if cuttings work on a windowsill, I have room for them!

Strangely enough had sausage sandwiches yesterday-aren't stones and roses a beat combo?

Ummmm sausage sandwiches what a good idea, garden advice and menu planning

Perhaps they'll be playing there Geoff, I love a twofor, but would probably be happier with James Taylor

Am off to visit village scarecrow competition. Doubt if any of them will speak to me, but will have camcorder on stand-by, just in case.

Scarecrows were originally pagan effigies, used for goodness-knows-what, besides scaring crows.

When my eldest was really small-he was in his high chair and we thought he might like Worzel Gummidge-when Worzel turned his head round and talked he screamed the place down in terror.

@ Geoff does he remember it?

14/07/2012 at 14:44

I shall remind him at a suitable point in his life along with the baby pictures of which parents are so fond of showing at inappropriate times

Penninepetal-have you told OH about this fixation on James Taylor?

It stopped raining long enough for me to pop to the shops, the sausages are under the grill I also dead headed a few plants and cut back the Himalayan honeysuckle as it was swamping some dahlias.

Why do parents like to mortify their kids???

It is a tradition that has passed through the generations-like The Great Escape at Christmas.

Talking of films is there any tv tonight?

14/07/2012 at 16:27

Yes there is -there is the shouty Cube-watch it if you want to see something unique

Pointless Celebrities

Indy is back with film2

Primeval for something silly

Superstar-but having been following that- posh X Factor

Mrs Brown later

Any thing there that floats your boat so to speak?

Hi all. Just spent some time in the GH, potting on a few things in hope! Nothing much to report, except a birthday last week and the acquisition of a Kenwood Chef (thanks to Bloke).
Niece is coming over for a baking session - coffee and walnut cake anyone?
14/07/2012 at 16:38

Wendy Crozier is coming back to Corrie to mess with Ken's mind

14/07/2012 at 16:41
No, Geoff, it was my secret until now, do you think hello will be calling me tomorrow?
14/07/2012 at 16:45

I will partake of cake if you are offering figrat

Don't answer the phone Penninepetal-it might be people asking you if you want to claim back PPI

Outside - along a public footpath - they'd been out all night, but didn't look any the worse for wear. A nice day is forecast for Sunday. Then it's back to paining.

Recorded Tour de France while I was out, so will watch that tonight. The finishing point was Cap D'Agde - some kind of French holiday resort.

Gary -you may need to avert your eyes
